About the Designer

George N.

George N.

George Nelson (1908-1986) was, together with Charles & Ray Eames, one of the founders of the American Modernism movement. We like to think of George Nelson as "The Creator of Beautiful and Practical Things". George Nelson was from a generation of architects who found too few projects and turned successfully toward product, graphic and interior design.

Based in Rome, Nelson met several of the pioneers of modernism while travelling in Europe. Upon returning to the US some years later, he turned to writing. Through his writing in "Pencil Points", he introduced Walter Gropius, Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier and Gio Ponti to North America. At "Architectural Forum" he was first associate editor (1935- 1943) and later consultant editor (1944-1949). He defended, sometimes ferociously, the modernist principles and irritated many of his "industrial designer" colleagues who, according to Nelson, bowed too easily to the commercial forces in industry.
